Obama To Collect Record Taxes In 2013
So not only is Obama the biggest spender ever, but he is also the biggest taxer ever. Will it ever be enough for liberals?
Check it out:
The federal Treasury expects to collect a record $2.712 trillion in taxes on Americans and U.S. business this year, shattering the 2007 high of $2.5 trillion in taxes.
Despite the sputtering economy and sustained high unemployment, the fine print in President Obama’s budget belatedly presented Wednesday revealed that the administration expects to take more in taxes than the Congressional Budget Office projects. CBO put the 2013 estimate at $2.708 trillion.
Republicans have seized on the number to bolster their fight against Obama’s goal of raising taxes, especially on the wealthy.
